Splish Splash of Color

IMG_3579 This graphic tank is one of my all time favorites, especially in the summertime. I love that the strong graphic is contrasted by more feminine blue and pink colors. Normally I wouldn't go be so match-matchy with my accessories, but I think pops of color are perfect for summertime and decided to have fun complimenting the splashy design in the tee.

Today was super lazy for me. I suppose this is okay for summertime, but I am hoping to kickstart my day tomorrow and get a lot done! For now I am off to spend some time hanging out with friends, because that's what summer is really all about.

"Somebody"

IMG_0992 I slept in a little today, so I was aiming for casual comfort. I haven't worn my geeky sweater in a while, and I figured that since school is starting to pick up again it was a good time to wear it. Normally I wouldn't pair a sweater in a soft blue color with a light washed denim, but since I have been liking the on-trend monochromatic look, I went with it.

For today's outfit track I wanted to share a band with you called Jukebox the Ghost. Jake introduced me to them a while back and since burning the CD I have really enjoyed the album. Listen along below to "Somebody" while you view--it's so catchy!

My roommates were awesome and pulled out a ladder from our side yard recently, so we've been having fun hanging out up there and enjoying the view, both sunsets and stargazing! I've been taking my blog photos up there lately and I have to say its so pretty and relaxing to go up there after I get home from class!

ART_Dreamcatcher Canvas

IMG_0069 Today I wanted to share a canvas piece I did for a friend a while back, but finally got the chance to photograph this morning. I finally took the plunge and bought a new camera yesterday, so I was able to get some good shots of the painting.

My friend asked for large wall art for his room. We decided on a dream catcher, but he gave me the freedom from there. I wanted warm toned colors that were natural and desert-like. I also ended up including some blue for contrast. He now has it hanging in his room, and it gives it a lot of color and character!

ART_"Guster" Skateboard Deck

DSC_1230 I have another music inspired deck to share with you today! After working with a client on this board, she asked me to paint another board for her and of course I said yes. This time she wanted me to reinterpret the album cover of Lost and Gone Forever by Guster. She asked for me to just focus on the main boy and also paint him in stencil style similar to Banksy.

I also wanted to share more of my process with you today. I started by playing around with the album cover in Photoshop, and ended up with this.

For the rest of the painting process, you can watch this quick iPhone video I made featuring music from the album. Otherwise, there are more detail photos below!
